Meet your daily productivity demands with efficiency and flexibility. With four automated HPLC channels, the Thermo Scientific™ Prelude LX-4 MD™ HPLC Class I medical device can deliver up to four different separations to a single mass spectrometer. Now you can streamline LC-MS workflows and increase productivity by reducing idle time, saving laboratory space and using technical staff more effectively. Combine the Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC with the Thermo Scientific™ TSQ Altis™ MD mass spectrometer or Thermo Scientific™ TSQ Quantis™ MD mass spectrometer and achieve greater productivity and confidence when providing laboratory-developed test results.
U.S. FDA listed Class I medical device.
Run more samples with method flexibility
Run up to four times the samples while maintaining selectivity and sensitivity. By coupling with a single MS, the Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC can approach the throughput of four HPLC instruments. Multichannel optimization of four parallel HPLC channels maximizes MS utilization and improves sample throughput. Unlike traditional HPLC pumps, they do not pump when the system is idle.
Increase your confidence in results
The Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC's integrated syringe pumps design delivers accurate, reproducible flow and gradient formation. Two pumps dedicated to each channel means you'll get robust and reproducible flow, and quantitative results.
Quantitate with Robust and Reproducible Flow
To increase your confidence in quantitative results, the Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC flow path, pump designs, and instrument control software, provide accurate, reproducible flow and gradient formation.
Maximize your return on lab investments Along with increases the productivity of your LC-MS workflows, you can maximize return on valuable laboratory investments in instruments, technical staff, floor space, and the other resources needed to operate and maintain them.
The Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC is intended to chromatographically isolate and separate analytes, such as drugs and endogenous compounds from a sample solution and introduce these separated drugs or compounds into a detector. For in vitro diagnostic use only by trained, qualified laboratory personnel.
Indications for use
The Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC will be used by clinical diagnostic laboratories as a component of a laboratory developed test (LDT) method or workflow.
Contraindications of use
